Fantastic bouquet full of oranges, lemon zest, marzipan, and cherries. Pours a dark ruby red that darkens to a brown around the edges. Flavor does not quite live up to the impressive nose but is still quite tasty with citrus flavors and carmelized sugar being at the forefront, followed by an earthy but subdued hop bitterness. Some nuttiness in the malt but none of the fruit flavors translate. Finishes clean and fairly neutral. Mouthfeel is slightly thinner than expected with an ample carbonation level. More of a hoppy amber than an IPA; very balanced and drinkable but doesn't come near my personal favorite example of the style, Arrogant Bastard.
